Officially, Christopher Meloni was confirmed to cast in the new series regular on ‘True Blood’. As per the earlier reports, Elliot Stabler of ‘Law & Order: Special Victims Unit’ was in talks to join the cast of the hit vampire-themed series, as said by the executive producer Alan Ball. He told that the 50-year-old actor will play an ancient, powerful vampire who holds the fate of Bill and Eric in his hands.

However, the negotiations between Meloni and HBO have started, few weeks ago. Also, his role marks his return to the cable network after he played bisexual criminal Chris Keller on prison drama ‘Oz’ that ran from 1998 to 2003.

Also, before casting as Meloni, the ‘True Blood’ series has added the British actress Lucy Griffiths to the cast line-up. But, she lands another regular role as Nora. She is strongly related to Eric since she was also created by Godric. Being a female vampire, she is described as being beautiful, intimidating, and intelligent and a very good liar.

‘True Blood’ season 3 is expected to be premiered in summer 2012. Meanwhile, Denis O’Hare has confirmed to reprise his role as Russell Edgington, who is the vampire King of Mississippi.
